Jos Poortvliet, please resolve these bugs and features:
I don't understand why you ask me to do that? I'm sure the people
working on those things would be happy with merge request. I'm barely
able to build a basic package on OBS so I surely won't be able to do
any of that...

I understand you care about these things but off-topic replies to
random mails won't exactly get you anything... (Incidentally, I
personally don't care for any of them and IF I could do such work and
would have time for it I'd work on different things).


I do not see in this list/thread the post from "Genix Info" to which you are replying.

However, I do see that you have cross-posted your reply to 4 mail lists.

In all the years (20+) during which I have been involved with Fidonet and Internet there has been the netiquette rule of not cross-posting messages. Wikipedia spells this out:


Crossposting is the act of posting the same message to multiple information channels; forums, mailing lists, or newsgroups. This is distinct from multiposting, which is the posting of separate identical messages, individually, to each channel, (a forum, a newsgroup, an email list, or topic area). Enforcement actions against crossposting individuals vary from simple admonishments up to total lifetime bans. In some cases, on email lists and forums, an individual is put under a Stealth Ban where their posts are distributed back to them as if they were being distributed normally, but the rest of the subscribers are not sent the messages. This is easily detected if the Stealthed individual has two different, and totally non-associated identities in the channel, such that the non-stealthed identity will see a different set of messages, lacking the posts of the stealthed individual, in their view of the channel.



(To whoever puts together the netiquette section wiki on the openSUSE mail lists should consider adding this to that list of DOs and DON'Ts.)
